Everyone has seen the few seconds of video that went viral over the weekend. During the finale of Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Dopey fell through the railing and bounced off Goofy. Although Goofy continued to perform, it looked like Dopey was not able to finish. He was tended to by Chip (or Dale) in the clip. Reports the next day said that an ambulance was called to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and both performers were treated on site and released. Disney has released no further information regarding the status (or seriousness) of any injuries.
Now, it appears that Disney has pulled the Steamboat from the Fantasmic finale. There is no information as to whether or not this is a permanent change or if the boat will simply have some safety features installed. Last night the boat finale was replaced with a wall of water finale.
